The store UI on console and web are atrocious

At least you can use the DS4 with the PS3 though. The DS3 was horrendous

Really interested on this since I have plans on getting a PS3 just to play Demon's Souls and one or two games I got with PS+. Will the DS4 work wireless with the PS3? the DS3 was awful by all acounts (awful triggers and sticks compared to the 360 pad) and the DS4 feels great.

trying to resist the fear

The triggers are OK but I still don't really like the pie crust thumbsticks on the DS4.

The DS4 is probably the smoothest controller I've ever handled and feels great in my hands. My only complaint really is that it's easy to fat finger the left analog stick when you're trying to use the D-Pad only.

What I'm getting at is...
Do you feel the same way?


The programmable touchpad is great on pc too. Always something useful even if occasionally it's just a quicksave button. Underutilized by virtually all developers on the actual PS4.

Until Dawn did some clever things with the touchpad + motion controls but yeah it's otherwise way underutilized for the potential.

Yeah the DS3 feels much worse than the DS4, which I also don't particularly like. How would I use the 4 on the PS3?

plug it in via usb, or do the generic Bluetooth pairing the ds4 supports (google it) and it will be detected as a pluginplay controller for the ps3. something it actually supported. That said there are some caveats. the PSButton doesn't work I believe so you need a ps3 controller to exit games. Also no analog on the triggers means any game that actually used analog mode will not detect presses. oddly enough games that used R2 and L2 as just buttons can detect them. So driving games are right out.

I had to get used to the ps4 controller for Guilty Gear XRD. I had trouble with ↓↘ → ↙↓← inputs. the dpad was a little bit different than the DS3. Got used to it now though.

The best use of the DS4 are the spraypaint cans in infamous.

I always get a kick out of the DS4 making noises when I play games. I am never expecting it, but I love it!

I'm usually wearing headphones and don't hear it, in what few games use it.

I am not on your side


I'm usually wearing headphones, but bought Stikbold to play with my kid the other day and we're both getting a kick out of the various character noises coming from the controllers.

I like the cops radio in GTA. And the lights going along with the siren.

Some games. I don't remember which, had ingame tapes you could find and the sound of the tapes would come from the dualshock.

I thought that that was pretty neat

I think it's nice when the controller gives you audio alerts that your eye might not catch, like in Injustice 2 when you get a bar of meter.

I'm pretty sure that Killzone does that. Because I got it with my PS4 and forgot that the controller had a speaker and drat near had a heart attack when i collected an audiolog and my hands started whispering to me.

Well using headphones turns off the speaker function, unless that's what you're saying.

Transistor can pipe the voice of the sword through your controller, but I had to switch it back to TV speakers because it was too quiet and much harder to understand.
